Bossier City, LA – David Daniel Clark was born June 7, 1953 in El Dorado, Arkansas, the son of Judge James Erle Clark and Susie Erskin Clark, and passed away peacefully at home in Bossier City, Louisiana on Friday, April 17, 2020.
David graduated from Louisiana State University of Shreveport with a bachelor’s degree in business. He served in the United States Marine Corp. at Camp Pendleton, Oceanside, California. David married his soul mate, Nell Miciotto and they spent their first year together in California. He was honorably discharged from the Marines in 1975 and they returned to Shreveport, Louisiana. David worked as a landman for Clark Energy Company for 20 years, before his retirement a year ago.
David loved life and always had as much fun as he could, finding life an adventure. He was one of the original members of the Krewe of Bar-BKewe in the Highland Mardi Gras parade. He was a proud blood donor and donated over 20 gallons of blood over the years. David was a member of the Shongaloo Hunt Club where he loved to hunt, play cards and ride his Polaris Razor. He was a season ticket holder for LSU football games and was a diehard Tigers fan. He and Nell took great pleasure in taking their grandchildren to the games. He will also be remembered for his colorful collection of New Orleans Jazz Festival shirts and LSU dress shirts.
David is survived by his adoring wife, to whom he always referred as “my beautiful bride” through out their 46 years of marriage; his daughter and son-in-law, Camille and Thomas Jones; grandchildren, Annabelle, Abbey and Lily Jones and David Clark Rimmer; surrogate grandchildren, Bennett, Sarah, Mary, Beau, Alex and Amelie Rimmer, children of Dr. Trey and Rachel Rimmer.
